Television Fanatic | What Shows You Should Watch this Fall
Television Fanatic notes how fall is the time of new beginnings, in school, in weather, and in entertainment. This browser extension provider, which delivers a program that allows people to watch television directly from their computer, explains how the autumn brings in a whole new lineup of shows to enjoy. As people return from their summer vacations and get back to work or school, they are looking forward to the new shows that television has to offer. Below are some of the more notable shows that have emerged in fall 2013.
Television Fanatic indicates that Sleepy Hollow is one of FOX’s newest fantasy shows that has received great reviews so far. Ichabod Crane is one of George Washington’s soldiers in the Revolutionary War who finds himself waking up in modern-day Sleepy Hollow, New York. He has been followed into the future by the Headless Horsemen, who has learned how to use advanced weaponry. Ichabod teams up with a police detective and the duo try to stop the Headless Horsemen, who is supposedly one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD
After the Avengers was a huge success in theaters, ABC commissioned a spin-off show that worked into the movie’s universe. Television Fanatic comments that director Joss Whedon returns to lead the show, which fans have been optimistic about since he has created such hit programs as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Angel. The show follows the eponymous Agents of SHIELD as they try to deal with the aftermath of the Avengers. People who enjoyed hit comic book hero movies such as Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America will thoroughly enjoy this show and its consistently fast-paced action.
Television Fanatic believes that TV networks need a refreshing brand of comedy nowadays. Brooklyn Nine-Nine pairs up Saturday Night Live veterans Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher in a buddy-cop comedy show. Samberg’s goofy yet competent Jack Peralta worked well with Braugher’s by-the-books yet lighthearted character. What makes this comedy stand out is that there is actually a solid storyline behind all of the funny antics, and crimes are getting solved in an efficient manner. People that enjoy a consistent show with a healthy dose of comedy would be wise to check out Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
FOX has been churning out a few fantasy shows, all of which have gained massive interest. Almost Human is set in 2048 and follows John Kennex, a detective who has recently returned to the police force after losing his leg and his partner during a botched criminal group takedown. Television Fanatic states that John is forced to partner up with an android, an idea that he shuns at first, but comes to terms with later on when he discovers that his partner can experience emotion. The android, Dorian, begins to display characteristics that make him “almost human.” People who enjoyed classic science fiction shows like Fringe will want to tune into this program.
Television Fanatic Commends Former Stars’ Comebacks to Television
“Two of the most talked about shows this fall are probably The Crazy Ones and the Michael J. Fox Show,” comments a representative from Television Fanatic. “The reason that people were so excited to see these shows was because of Michael J. Fox and Robin Williams’ return to television. Fox had retired from the limelight after his unfortunate health issues took over, but he has found a way to incorporate that into the show.
“Williams and Fox were favorites among older generations. Now that they are back on television, older viewers can tune in and watch the same brand of humor that they grew up with. Both old and young viewers will find entertainment in watching Fox and Williams dominate the small screen once again.”
The Crazy Ones
Television Fanatic describes The Crazy Ones as a sitcom starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams as a father-daughter executive team. Williams plays Simon Roberts, an expert seller who has lived a hard life and is now attempting to climb back to the top. Williams reportedly drew upon real-life experiences to truly capture the essence of his character, which is why fans adore his work so much.
The Michael J. Fox Show
Michael J. Fox has drawn upon his own life for his show as well. Television Fanatic explains how The Michael J. Fox Show follows Mike Henry, a former news anchor who gave up his career after he discovered that he has Parkinson’s disease (an ailment that has plagued Fox in real life). Five years later, Mike attempts to go back to work while trying to maintain a healthy balance with his family and his career, all while fighting past his illness. The show has been honored with the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Most Exciting New Series. Television Fanatic believes that Fox’s charm is enough to continue drawing fans to the series in the future.
